Thanks to its eclectic mix of beautifully restored historical buildings, boutique stores, artisanal restaurants and vibrant nightlife, De Waterkant has quickly become one of the trendiest areas in Cape Town.
As a sub-district of Green Point, De Waterkant often feels like a private sanctuary in the middle of the bustling city centre. Visitors - both local and international - love coming for a chance to indulge their inner foodie thanks to the area's diverse mix of Greek, Turkish, Italian, French and local cuisine. While a good meal is always a highlight of any trip, the Cape Quarter provides boutique shopping at its best. Get your caffeine boost at one of the coffee shops, admire the work of local artists at the galleries and even game up a new outfit for a night on the town.
Fondly known to locals as the “pink district”, De Waterkant is one of the most LGBTQ-friendly areas in the city, boasting an abundance of gay and straight-friendly restaurants, bars and nightclubs. If an unforgettable party is on your holiday agenda, look no further than the leafy streets of this hidden gem.
Even though this charming area provides plenty of entertainment, the nearby V&A Waterfront is a must-see. Boasting international and local brands and many top-quality restaurants, visitors to the V&A are in the perfect place to give their credit card a good workout. Alternatively, why not enjoy one of the canal cruises offered along the harbour or set sail for the historically incomparable Robben Island. If fun for the whole family is what you’re after, the incredible Two Oceans Aquarium is always a good choice.
